explains why, when the air
bag inflates, it will gener-
ate heat, produce smoke (this does
not mean that a fire is about to start)
and make a noise upon detonation.
In a situation where an air bag is
required, it will inflate immediately
and this may cause some minor, su-
perficial grazing to the skin or other
problems.
1.22
METHODS OF RESTRAINT IN ADDITION TO THE FRONT SEAT BELTS (3/3)
All of the warnings below are given
so that the air bag is not obstructed
in any way when it is inflated and
also to prevent the risk of serious in-
juries caused by items which may be
dislodged when the air bag inflates.

“Adjusting your driving position”).
This will allow sufficient space
for the air bag to deploy correctly
and to be fully effective.
1.23
ADDITIONAL METHODS OF RESTRAINT
All of the warnings below are given so that the air bag is not obstructed in any
1
way when it is inflated and also to prevent the risk of serious injuries caused
by items which may be dislodged when the air bag inflates.
The air bag is designed to complement the action of the seat belt. Both
the air bags and seat belts are integral parts of the same protection
system. It is therefore essential to wear seat belts at all times. If seat belts
are not worn, the occupants are exposed to the risk of serious injury in
the event of an accident. It may also increase the risk of minor superficial injuries
occurring when the air bag is deployed, although such minor injuries are always
possible with air bags.
The airbags are not always triggered if the vehicle overturns or in the event of a
rear impact, however severe. Impacts to the underside of the vehicle (such as
from a pavement or stones, etc.) can cause this system to be triggered.
-
Any work or modification to any part of the airbag system (airbags, ECU, wiring,
etc.) is prohibited (except by qualified personnel from an authorised dealer).

For child safety, move the front seat
as far forward as possible to install a
booster seat, then move it back as far
as it will go, without allowing it to come

Check that the booster seat is resting
against the back of the vehicle seat.
Check that when installing
the booster seat in the vehi-
